    When chickens start laying eggs at 5 or 6 months can you hatch the small ones or do u have to wait till there big eggs.

    My understanding is that it's best to wait a few months.

    One of my chickens laid its first egg last week. It was very small, but I have been incubating it for 7 days. When I candle it everything looks alright. There is definetly growth inside.
